Clementine Update

July 19, 2010 - 6:04 pm No Comments

Via the publisher’s web page announcement – get one while you still can, because Clementine will be sold-out on publication.

“… [Subterranean] currently have orders for more copies than we can fill, so we’ll be forced to allocate quantities sent to our wholesale and large online retail accounts. We’ll leave the order page for Clementine up for a few more days, so you can lock in a copy by ordering direct, but once we actually start shipping the book, we’ll make it out of print in the store.”

In other words, get it while it’s hot – because precious few of these will ship to stores. And when these gorgeous hardbacks are gone, they’re gone for good.

Edited to add: IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PREORDERED from Subterranean Press, have no fear. Your books will be on their way shortly! If you preordered from a large retailer like Amazon, everything SHOULD be fine, but the publisher cannot guarantee it. FROM HERE ON OUT the only way to be dead sure you get a copy is to order directly from the publisher.

(However, if you were slow on the draw there is hope – for this book will be out in trade paperback next year. )

Bargain Time

So…I just noticed – you can preorder Dreadnought for ten bucks on Of course, if you’d rather preorder from your local chain or independent bookseller of preference, you are heartily encouraged to do so – but if the discount makes all the difference to your wallet, well, there you go. Heads up.

For more info about Dreadnought, check out its listing at Macmillan – where you will find an excerpt free for your reading pleasure, plus links and other goodies – including a handy-dandy widget which I will figure out how to install on my website sometime this afternoon. Also, don’t forget there’s a Facebook page dedicated to the Clockwork Century. Feel free to check it out and give it some clicking love. Or “like,” as the case may be.

Anyway, I do hope you’ll consider buying Dreadnought. I think you’ll like it – particularly if you’re interested in wazzy frontier alternate-history, Civil War espionage, primitive battle mechs, dirigibles, the James gang, and hordes of shambling undead. Perhaps you’ll enjoy reading about a widowed nurse headed west carrying little more than a dead gambler’s guns – and this nurse’s subsequent adventures with a pair of Mexican inspectors, a steampunk Texas Ranger, and a desperate-but-brilliant Union captain who may have to save the world. Heck, maybe you’d just like to know what happened to Briar and Zeke after Boneshaker ended.

Well I am here to tell you that YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL.*
